Want everyone's opinion. As you know difficult child has been struggling in school with various reasons. Not academically..that is when he can remember to do his work, or turn it in. The following is a questionnaire the psychiatrist had me give to his teachers. 6 out of seven teachers returned it and today we see the psychiatrist. (who refuses to see a reason for neuropsychologist testing) Never been tested for anything. 1. Restless or overactive 2 Excitable, Impulsive 3. Disturbs other children 4. Fails to finish things he/she starts - short attention span 5. Constantly fidgeting 6. Inattentive, easily distracted 7. Demands must be met Immediately - easily frustrated 8. Cries often and easily 9. Mood changes quickly and drastically 10. Temper outburst, explosive and unpredictable behavior OK. the answers are Not at all, Just a little, Pretty Much, Very Much. All but 2 teachers marked everyone Very Much. Except cries often. That one is Not at all (for everyone). The two who didn't answer everyone Very Much, were either pretty Much or inbetween. What do you think? I am leaning towards ADHD. The part that draws me back is if he likes it, he has no problem with it. And the class he likes, that teacher didn't turn in a paper. He also can sit and finish most things if he understands it. Only when he doesn't understand does the frustration build. And, how can he understand it when he is never in class??? He missed every day last week. How can he understand Algebra when he isn't there??
